Event Description: 

The world premiere of “POSITIVE WOMEN: EXPOSING INJUSTICE,” a cutting-edge documentary exploring the impacts of criminalization of HIV non-disclosure on women in <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 />Canada.


What happens if a woman does not disclose her HIV-positive status to a sexual partner? How does criminalization impact HIV-positive women in Canada, who are trying to live their lives in the shadow of stigma and fear? Does the law actually protect women's health? How do women feel about their experience with the criminal law with respect to HIV non-disclosure?


Positive Women: Exposing Injustice takes the audience into the hearts and minds of four positive women bravely speaking out on this important issue.


Women's voices have rarely been heard on this important issue.
